**^v YtfarZ, 


When we walk through these doors 

there will be no clocks, 

there will be no mirrors, 

no sadness or sorrow; 

no regret or disappointment.

There will be smiles and laughter; 
friendly handshakes and warm embraces. 
There will be the telling of tales 
and the swapping of little white lies. 

Old friendship will be renewed, 
lost ones found and new ones made. 

Music will make our bodies sway 

and our hearts dance. 

And when the night is done... 

We will hold onto these moments 
like the fireflies we once held in a jar 
and delight in their beauty.

Memories of 

The Way We Were 

It is the innate intent of every parent to provide the 
very best for his child. As it is today, so was it of notable 
concern in the early 1930s. This decade witnessed a 
world in constant transition — massive industrialization, 
innovative science, aggressive medicine, progressive 
ideologies, permissive mores and a global culture reflec- 
tive of the day. In response, our forefathers proposed 
a compelling reformation of their educational system; 
namely, the inclusion of a school of "higher" learning. 

Our beloved Alma Mater rose from humble 
beginnings, the brainchild of the working father, the 
nurturing mother, the enterprising clergy. Regardless 
of social status, each was driven to provide a formal 
education, a modern education compliant with Catholic 
principles. Christian values. A primary education was 
now considered obsolete. Through the 
combined efforts of the diocese, Notre 
Dame parishioners, and the business 
community, Academie Notre Dame 
was born. 

In 1934, Monsignor Marie Athanase 
Desrochers commissioned the Sisters of 
Assumption (SASV) to staff the newly 
created high school. That September she 
welcomed her first students, a group of 
young ladies, each very eager to learn. 
Their one-room "center of education" was 
situated on the third floor in the Notre Dame 
Pine Street school. A year later, in response 
to a growing population, three more classrooms were 
implemented. Additionally, a closet was converted 

into "the typing room," forever banishing the 
disconcerting "rat-a-tat" into seclusion. A number of 
young men had now enrolled into the program, only 
to join the workforce at the tender age of sixteen. A 
curriculum of Religion, Histoire Sainte, Langue 
Frangaise and Literature was introduced, along with 
a basic commercial course of typing and shorthand. 
At that time, Gregg Shorthand was an integral 
component of a secretary's portfolio. Accordingly, 
medals of proficiency were awarded upon successful 
completion of the subject matter. Later, Bookkeeping 
and Business Law would supplement the syllabus. 

The Sisters, namely, Reverend Sisters Rolande, 
Frangois de L'Enfant Jesus, Helene du Crucifix and 
Paul du Sacre Coeur, accepted their daunting challenge 

with fervor, with a dedication to 
render their fledgling students an 
education befitting the times. To 
that end, tutoring was afforded 
a sickly student, with evening 
sessions held in Sister Rolande's 
private quarters. In June, 1938, 
amid the proverbial "pomp and 
circumstance," Academie Notre 
Dame graduated her first seniors: 
valedictorian Rita Archambeault 
Carrier, Charlotte Berthiaume 
Brodeur and Irene Lavallee Avery. 
Throughout the years, Charlotte 
would often boast, albeit tongue in cheek, "I graduated 
third in my class." There were only three!

Our school continued to prosper into the early 
forties, only to relinquish her student body to the 
war. As young men fought the enemy line, women 
manned the hometown factory. Uncle Sam called; 
they answered. Evidence shows in 1949 only four 
graduated. However, the postwar years told a different 
story. A growth spurt called for expansion; the annex 
of four classrooms opened in 1 95 1 . At this time she 
celebrated the birth of her "homeroom." Now every 
freshman, sophomore, junior and senior enjoyed the 
comfort of his own classroom, each assigned his 
personal desk. What was more, college preparatory 
courses came to the fore. It was evident Notre Dame 
was earmarked for greatness! 

The fifties heralded her "coming of age." A strong 
student population could now 
support competitive sports 
and social events. Although 
the customary home parties 
and after school socializing 
at Blondie's endured, baseball 
and basketball games, CYC 
activities, Glee Club concerts 
and the Saturday Night Dance 
emerged. And at long last the 
widely anticipated prom debuted, eclipsing the formal 
dance of bygone days. In the spring of '51, Notre Dame 
Hall hosted her inaugural ball. The venue of old, Le 
Cercle Canadien, could no longer accommodate a large 
attendance. Young ladies donned gowns of taffeta; the 
gentlemen sported their handsome finery. The orchestra 
played, couples danced, chaperones kept a watchful eye. 

An occasional admonishment, "S'il vous plait, laissez 
I'espace pour le Saint Esprit," echoed throughout the 
hall. Hum, what would they have said today? 

Again the call for modernization was sounded. 
The college bound senior required a nationally 
accredited program. Consequently, essential criteria 
were addressed. Her grassroots education, now severely 
deficient, exacted a degreed faculty. The dated curricu- 
lum petitioned extensive revision. The empirical science 
claimed a "testing ground," a hands-on laboratory; the 
curious mind envisioned an adequately stacked library; 
the social activity fancied a suitable assembly area. And 
the growling stomach? It craved its "just desserts," a 
well-appointed cafeteria. Au revoir, PB and J! 

In his 1953 sermon, Monsignorjean-Baptiste 

Lamothe announced construction of an additional 
building was under serious advisement. The 
proposed Marcy Street school would supple- 
ment the Pine Street annex. Committees formed, 
fundraisers canvassed, architects designed, 
contractors labored. All concurred this would be a 
"state-of the-art" facility, with every requirement 
properly addressed. Five classrooms, two offices, 
a biology/chemistry/physics laboratory, library and 
cafeteria/activities "hall" surfaced, as planned. 





Amid euphoric jubilation, 
the cornerstone was laid in 

1954. She would formally 
address her venturesome 
student body in September, 

1955. His Excellency John J. 
Wright, Bishop of Worces- 
ter, offered his ceremonious 

blessing, parishioners reveled in pride, the student choir 
sang her praises. A new world of enlightenment lay 
before her. At last, Notre Dame had realized her 
estimable position in the world of education. 

Headmaster Reverend Claude Lamothe and his 
successors, Reverends Paul Choquette, Charles 
Gendreau and Paul Charpentier guided her through her 
educational journey. She would nurture, teach, laugh 
and cry for ten more years. Academics progressed, 
extracurriculars enlightened and entertained, sports 
cheered on. The National Honor Society reinforced 
this mission. Medals, ribbons and trophies attested 
to her mettle — math and science fairs, declamation 
contests, French and Latin national competitions, writing 
exposes, business exhibitions, Glee Club sing-offs, play 
reenactments, sports tourneys. 1962 marked a social 
event worthy of comment; namely, the CYC hop hosted 
by WBZ's Dave Maynard. In 1964, she entered the 
basketball limelight. The "mighty, mighty" Teddy Bears 
were County Catholic League champions. Additionally, 
a decisive victory over arch-rival Southbridge High 
School garnered them the first Tri-Area League title; and, 
"la piece de resistance," an impressive State Class C 
Championship in Lawrence. The following year, the 

"Flying Frenchmen" were 
County League repeats, 
only to fall short to St. 
Columbkille in the state 

In the summer of 1965, 
an overwhelming melan- 
choly pervaded her spirit. 
Effective that September, Notre Dame High School 
would join forces with her neighbor, St. Mary High 
School — a diocesan decree had been proclaimed. Much 
to their chagrin, the students and faculties assimilated, 
albeit with initial resistance, to form Marianhill Central 
Catholic High School. Remnants of each survived the 
merger until September, 1968. Henceforth, her offspring 
would assume her sole identity. Sadly, her life's work had 
come to an abrupt end. 

Unto this day her legacy lingers on. Our Alma 
Mater's visible testament lives within us, — the clergy, 
the medical and legal professional, the academic, the 
scientist, the entrepreneur, the businessperson. More- 
over, let us not overlook the mother and the father. We 
all passed through her hallowed halls enriched with an 
education rooted in Catholic principles, Christian values, 
those very teachings pioneered in 1938. And that, my 
fellow schoolmates, was the way we were.
